an interesting one, this

the release process we use here in the commons (release candidates
rather than blessing a concrete distribution) means that there are
always changes between the final release candidate and the release
distributed. the question is what changes are acceptable and which
necessitate another VOTE. 

we already have changes to the documentation and some to the code
formatting committed. more changes (as outlined by dennis) shouldn't
really effect the result: either no changes above the minimum version
changes are acceptable or cosmetic and documentation ones are.

it feels like a long, long we've travelled. after all this effort, i
think one final push is worth it. given the fact that the changes are
cosmetic and documentation, i think i'll cut one more candidate tomorrow
but propose a short length for the vote.
